unconscious in your mam's case look likes hypoglycemic encepalathy,since CTreport came as norma?,contrastCT is another option, she will regain consciousnes after effective control of hypertension,but deep evaluation is necessary.

hi welcome to healthcaremagic
it looks like haemmorhagic stroke and i guess she has got multiple problems..till she gets out of the ventilator her condition is not stable..it will take atleast a week to get a clear picture..her condition will improve gradually..

hello,
since your ct report is normal ,mri and ecg should be done to find out the cause wheather iscemic or hemorrhagic. since bp is high it may be hemorrhagic.its difficult to say when she will regain consciousness.but wait for some days for her condition to be stable.then she will gain consciousness.

YOU HAVE MENTIONED 50/130 BP OR IS IT 130/50? if 50/130 is very unuasual case,now contrast CTdone ALSO normal means very less DAMAGE MIGHT HAVE TAKEN PLACE IN BRAIN, HOWEVER MRI NEED TO BE DONE,LOW BP might be due to secondary (left,most of cases) heart failure following arrithimias developed by many more reasones eg left ventricular hyprotrophy,MI&MANY MORE ,see that HYPOTENSION IS NOT good sign for any one,who had been suffering from long standing NIDDM&HTN,even for docs it is very challing to to get it to stabel BP,1)ONCE BP ACHIVED NORMAL SOME DAYS,2) HEART SHOULD BE IN GOOD CONDITION, ENOUGH TO PUMP BLOOD(DIAGNOISED BY ecg,echo angiogram etc) OUT OF HEART WITH HR70-80/MIN,SHE VL SURVIVE OTHERWISE GOD KNOWS,LET GOD BLESS YOUR MOM,ALL THE BEST.

My friends husband had a heart attack yesterday and when he collapsed he hit his head on the water cooler. Do not know how long before someone found him. They put 4 stents in however he has not regained consciousness? They said they were keeping his body temperature down and now they are going to gradually warm his body temperature. Not sure if there is any brain damage issues they have not told her. He is on blood pressure medicine and cholesterol medicaine. He is 54 years old not sure of his weight but he is definitely not overweight and is active. Does not smoke.

My grandmother has had an ischaemic stroke about 9 days ago. She was started on conservative treatment. On the third day ct scan revealed haemorrhagic transformation within the infarct but not big enough to warrant surgery . She has been in ICu now for 11 days in a semi conscious state gas ranging from 9 - 11. It was a left mca stroke affecting the temporoparietal region. When will she regain consciousness?
